this for months now. after the 2010 election, obama sat down and thought about what his message is, his vision is, his strategy going into 20 1237 that's what i wrote about in "showdown" and he's stuck to this with such devotion and passion, because he believes in it. there's a real distinction between him and republicans when it comes to all those issues you just talked about, but these are value-driven differences. not just policy differences. you want to do this with the deficit. i want to do that. it's like the reason i want to do this is because i have a different set of values than republicans. >> what are those values? spell them out. >> using government as a communal progressive force to protect the safety net and to come together and invest in innovation, education, infrastructure. we're in it together. versus the ryan budget, which used as a stand-in first republican nominee, which says we're on it alone, get rid of government and give you a voucher, find medicare on your own. here comes romney and he sort of fits the mold. he's a 1 percenter. he shows no empathy, even before the 47%. >

's stand down. >>> to the race for the white house. president obama and mitt romney will be campaigning in the same state again today, virginia this time after a day in ohio. in a new two minute ad set to air today, president obama promote as economic plan he says will create one million manufacturing jobs and cut oil imports. he's leading in the polls in ohio where he once again linked romney to his comments that 47% of americans are victims who depend on government >> the president: as i travel around ohio and look out on this crowd, i don't see a lot of victims, i see hard workers, that's what i see. >> romney is trailing in florida and iowa. was asked about the numbers. i'm pleased with some, less with others, frankly, at this stage polls go up, polls go down, that's what he said. he's trying to retool his message as some can cast early ballots today. >>> america's cup world series back in town next week. yesterday afternoon the team's practice officials say the interest outside the u.s. is building and an audience in san francisco is jut a matter of getting people to watch this new
to win in november. in 2008 obama took it down with 53% of the vote with results that very nearly matched the national tally. the real clear politics average has him leading by 4.5 points. the race is close in the home state with romney holding a slight lead as recently as two weeks ago. let's bring in brian moran to see if he gives us a preview of december. thanks for joining us. >> happy to be with you. we do enjoy a lead, but if i might continue the football analogies, we need to play the entire 60 minutes. we cannot let up until the clock runs out 7:00 p.m. on november 6th. we're working very hard to make sure we deliver -- redeliver our 13 electoral votes for the next president of the united states, barack obama, and the united states senate seat tim kaine. >> i love that you're continuing our football analogy for us there. in virginia, obviously, i'm a native virginian in the northern virginia area. a bit cultural different than the rest of the state. are the campaigning using different messages to connect with voters in different parts of the state? >> i haven't seen that. i think
president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every tax rate by 20%. to insure the treasury department takes in about the same amount of money under a new system,
you surprised or dismayed or both by president obama refusing to sit down with any world leaders this week? i was. i did think that was a missed opportunity. obviously he's concerned about the election. he's also our president. i think that just as he gets a little extra bang for the buck when he gives a speech opposed to romney giving it he has a responsibility to take this time, the u.n. general assembly once a year and meet a few more crucial leaders. i think that was unfortunate that he left the heavy lifting for hillary clinton. >> when i talked to mahmoud ahmadinejad he was keen to try to move on the game in the middle east by saying america's place is not to continue to get involved. you can already see he says a lot of difficulties are rising from intervention. let democracy, freedom, whatever you want to call it come organically through the people. very self serving to say this. the last thing he would allow in his own country. >> or syria. >> where he is almost certainly helping out his friend assad. >> i was amused in regards to syria, he said we are friends with both
the full hour at ten o'clock. president obama continues to double down on green energy. smith electric received 32 million dollars of taxpayer grants to build a battery powered vehicle factory in kansas city. here is president obama visiting that plant in 2010. >> one of those decisions was to provide critical funding to promising innovative businesses like smith electric vehicles. and because we did, there's a thriving enterprise here instead of an empty, darkened warehouse. because of the grant that went to this company, we can hear the sounds of machines humming and people doing their work instead of just the ghostly silence of an emptied out building and the memory of workers who were laid off a long time ago. stuart: hold on, hold your horses. the president could have another solyndra on his hands. smith electric promised to make 620 trucks this year. it then cut the estimate to 380 and in june made only 79. and after weak investor demand the company canceled its 125 million dollar ipo, gone, cancelled and now, mitt romney has a new ad attacking the administration's green energy a

kind of message they understand. >> remember when president obama said he would sit down with him, bob? remember that? i'll sit down, we eke talk, we'll chat. how has that worked out? >> bob: i want to point out that netanyahu has tried to get the allies, israel allies around the world to underscore this red line. not one of them has come forward. the reason they haven't and the reason he is going public now, he is under political pressure back home from the party and the religious parties. they want to get their allies out in front of the red line. the red line is dangerous. while, by the way, the sanctions are working and crippling tehran -- iran. >> andrea: but crippling them economically. we have seen a decline in their oil and four rounds of sanctions. but it hasn't slowed down the weapons process. >> bob: we don't know that. israel and the united states, israel particularly has done a good job taking out the engineers. there is a lot they have been behind in the centrifuge development. >> eric: are you willing to basically bet the world that they're not that close to nuclear bomb

down to base turnout. this is going to come down to what is the ground game for mitt romney. what is the ground game for president barack obama and will their voters come out? having somebody day on a phone call as to how they're going to vote is irrelevant. the question is are they going to bring, are they going to come out, bring their family members out. are they going to bring their neighbors out? to the republicans stop all of this inses sent whining about the polls. the real analysis from campaigns is going to be the first two weeks of early voting. they will get a sense of what the turnout is. go back to 2008. president obama's folks in 2008 actually looked in north carolina as a state they were losing. when they saw early turnout in 2008, they sent troops and money back into north carolina. that's how they won by 14,000 votes. how a poll says it's one thing, but it's what happens when they actually vote. that's what matters at the end of the day. >> but that early voting is why these polls do matter more. it's not just the only poll that counts on election day. early votin

down to the fundamentals and if people are feeling better about the economy. barack obama is going to win. where mitt romney has failed so far is to convince people who are unhappy with the economy that he he would be any better. >> bill: all right. now, the media doctor sabato, i don't think there? i question they want barack obama to win. they being the national media. and if you did a real clear politics consensus on the media, it would be like 75-25 we want obama to win. a lot of that is the reportage reflects that, maybe subconsciously maybe as morris says not subconsciously do it on purpose. when people hear it on in the car, driving to work, this, that, and the other thing that the president is polling ahead, that means something, does it not? >> well, yes and no. now, look, bill, there is a lot of research on this. and people are not empty vessels into which the media can pour opinions. again, that's not just my opinion. that's a lot of research behind it. we all have perceptual screens and we screen out things with which we disagree. you know, when people listen to media r
the two candidates barack obama is going to win. >> mitt romney's numbers are down in key swing states. and let me play for you what was said yesterday by former -- by ohio governor john kay sick about those polls. >> in these polls don't even pay attention to them. the numbers you just cited are numbers i didn't pay attention to on my own numbers because it depends when you ask, it defends how you ask, it depends what the sample is. look, i think this is very close out here. >> governor, three polls in swing states in just a couple of days. they all show the movement 2re7 trending away from mitt romney, toward barack obama. is there something an internal polling in the romney that's telling them something different, are they kidding themselves? >> well, i think that's internal to the romney campaign, i don't even know those numbers but i can tell you the two ads we just saw are engaging on the right topic for the american t voters. a business round-table last week had a meeting. our ceo said it privately and then publicly yesterday, we released a big drop, third sharpest drop in expec
that same red line if the iranians are going to back down. and you haven't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in the past in the straits of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administration about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and monitor. and that's the part that's in facilities that are observable and are still vulnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with us in a dialogue about it. you mentioned that the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. the presiden
and don't vote. >> they're going to show president obama way up in the polls just to tamp down y br voting. republicans go >> it's the liberal media. does the obama campaign need to even respond to this garbage? >> i don't think they need to respond, but as democrats, i think we need to be very careful about being overconfident. this rac is not like 2008, and at'somet tst s little bit of pause and concern. 2008, you knew it was over by mid-september, as soon as the financial crisis happened. it was basically destiny. you knew the president, you knew that then senator obama was going to win. this one, i would say, the president is clearly in a strong position, but the are still potential twists herite de bng one of them, if governor romney has a good debate, he can change it, but the problem here is he's running a bad campaign he's a bad candidate with bad policies, and how do you turn that around in one debate? i'm not sure it's possible. >>well chs got all these internal numbers now that he's banking on. they've got to be feeling good about their internal numbers. every campaign h
as they should. and they have both been strong in the area. it's unfair to assert that president obama has let down the guard. libya was a triple tragic event. he died two weeks ago today along with the three of the colleagues. the responsibility for guarding our embassy overseas is not the -- we don't have american military protecting our embassy. it's the host country that provides the perimeter security around the diplomatic security. we provide the security for the foreign embassies in new york city. who let us down in cairo? it was the egyptian government. that's why the crowd went over the wall and put down the american flag and putted it up. it was the libyan security forces who let us down in benghazi when ambassador stevens was killed. i don't think it's appropriate to somehow blame the state department or the white house for this. and now obviously, we have to do everything we can to protect our people. as grow know president obama got on the phone with the president of egypt after the embassy was attacked and basically said you have to do a better job. there's is my paraphrasing wha
to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress among that outside margin that obama got the 14 points in 2008 among white college graduates voters but he's not making nearly enough progress to take the state. if you break it down geographically, the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state and that looks very similar in terms of how it is coming out in the polling data as it did in 2008. and then finally sort of the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it can shift a stay pretty rapidly over time is the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead, though not nearly as far as he did in 2008, but look at these data. unfortunately, it's a little cut off your on my monitor what you can see that an incredible increase, nine percentage points, the share of eligible voters who are minority took place according to the data between 2008-2012. that's a massive demographic tide. you can also see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters who are white noncollege which, of course, was john mccain's best group in 2008. that's a very q
duties will not be standing down their training will come later. >>> president obama and mitt romney will be campaigning in the same state again today, virginia this time after a day in ohio. in the new two minute ad set to air today, president obama promotes an economic plan he says will create one million manufacturing jobs and cut oil imports he's leading in the polls in ohio. romney says he's not pleased but adds the race is far from over. >>> breaking business news. campbell soup will be closing two plans one in new jersey and one in sacramento. the company says the closures are being done to improve u.s. supply chain and cost structure. the sacramento plant has been open since 1947 and has 700 fulltime employees scheduled to close by july of 2013. >>> one week after going on sale, there's talk of problems with the camera on the iphone 5. >> jane king with that and big changes possibly coming to your health insurance plan. >>> good morning. this is going to be closely watched, companies adapt to health care reforms, darden restaurants and sears giving employees a fixed sum of mo
